San Diego Sites

Saturday, July 19th, we had the day to do our exploring in San Diego. I was born there and my grandparents lived there during all my growing up years, so I have a lot of fun memories there. For some reason in all the trips to California we have taken over the years we haven't gone down to San Diego though, so it had been years since I'd been.
I was excited to see my grandparents' house and a certain park that I remember going to and having a birthday party at, etc. My grandparents house was so cute and I remember loving the inside as a kid, but I especially loved the yard. I have memories running around the decks, exploring the the creek bed next to it and one particular memory using some building kit to make a car we could actually fit in. I should try to find those online now that I think about it! We went to the elementary school across the street from their house to play (because the playground I had all those fun memories at hasn't been updated since I was a kid and was pretty worn down and boring). The weather was of course amazing, and since I went to the school for a brief period (I think I went to 3 elementary schools in SD) it was fun for the kids to see it.
After looking around that area we headed to the San Diego Temple. It is definitely one of my favorites...so gorgeous! I had really wanted to get married in this particular temple, but with no one living in San Diego by that time it didn't make any sense and would have been impossible to plan a wedding there. Oh well, Orlando was pretty in it's own way :-).
And to finish off the first half of day we went to lunch at a cute and yummy pizza place my grandfather recommended to us. It was such a treat this whole trip to eat outside whenever we could and enjoy the perfect weather!

Preston got in trouble so he was drawing cute sad faces in a very dramatic fashion to show us how he felt :-)
